If you have lost a tooth or multiple teeth, it can make it difficult to speak and eat normally or comfortably. A smile with missing teeth can also be unsightly. Dental implants provide an excellent way to replace missing teeth. Here at Creve Coeur Family Dental, we provide state-of-the-art dental implants. Our implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth!
The most common cause of tooth loss is periodontitis, also known as severe gum disease. In addition, if you contract periodontal disease near Peoria once your implant is in place, the disease can make the implant itself unstable. To prevent periodontitis, follow a careful dental hygiene routine. Brush at least twice daily and floss once daily. Schedule regular visits to your dentist to monitor the health of your teeth and gums. The symptoms of periodontal disease include swollen, irritated, sensitive, and bleeding gums. If you detect any possible signs of periodontitis, schedule an appointment with your dentist.
